The impressions fitness suite at the Huntingdon site, opened its doors to the public last weekend, giving guests the opportunity to try the faculties free of charge for the grand opening.

Guests were invited to see the final stages of the refurbishment which includes a brand new reception area, café, children’s soft play centre and crèche.

The upgraded gym is now on two floors and has been fitted with new cardio, strength, free weight and functional equipment.

The fitness suite was originally located at the bottom of the building, and has gradually been moved to a space upstairs, meaning that the site didn’t have to close for the refurbishment.
